If you’re an oyster lover, you know what’s up. A lot of people think they’re the best, but they can’t compare to those with a taste for oysters Rockefeller. I grew up in the South, and with all the oysters we ate, we never had a problem making them at home. These oysters taste just as good as those we had on the grill with our favorite Southern-inspired dishes.

How to make Antoine’s Oysters Rockefeller

Antoine’s oysters are a New York original served with three sauces: oyster sauce, sweet sauce, and spicy Italian. The oyster Rockefeller is one of the most popular variations on Antoine’s regular oyster appetizer. Using two types of crab – crabmeat and crabapples – Antoine’s Oyster Rockefeller combines crab chunks with sweet corn, bacon, caramelized onions, melted butter, and lemon.


  • Rock salt (to taste)
  • oysters in shells (chilled), 12
  • Butter, 4 tablespoon
  • Flour, 4 tablespoon
  • Cayenne, 1/4 teaspoon
  • Scallions (minced), 6
  • Ribs celery (minced), 2
  • Sprigs tarragon (stemmed & minced), 2
  • Sprigs parsley (stemmed & minced), 6
  • Salt & white pepper (to taste)
  • Bread crumbs, 3 tablespoon


Step 1

Sprinkle half of the rock salt in two oven-safe baking dishes.

Step 2

Catch the liquid from oysters by shucking them over a bowl. Using a knife, remove oysters from bottom shells and discard flat top shells. Place six oysters per baking dish on a bed of rock salt. Chill.

Step 3

Melt butter in a saucepan of two quarts. Whisk flour into butter, cooking for about two minutes until smooth. About two minutes after adding the oyster liquid, stir until the mixture thickens to a paste. 

Step 4

Stir in the celery, cayenne, tarragon, parsley, scallions, salt, and white pepper. Cover and cook on medium heat until soft, about one hour.

Step 5

Process the bread crumbs in a food processor for about two minutes to make a smooth paste.

Step 6

Preheat the broiler to high. Paste should be placed in a pastry bag with a 1/2-inch fluted tip. Spread the paste over the oysters completely.

Step 7

The oysters should be just cooked through and the paste will begin to brown, about 5 – 7 minutes. Serve immediately.
